Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Why is staying active important?  
Because your well-being depends on it. You'll look and feel better, every day.   When you make staying active part of your daily life, you don't get tired after taking a flight of stairs. You have more energy for weekend get-togethers with family and friends. You're more alert, and you're more sure of yourself.   Fitness is about improving endurance, flexibility, and strength through regular physical activity.  Remember, it's never too late to get more active. Every little bit helps. It doesn't have to be strenuous to be healthy, either. Just start slowly and build gradually. The time to begin is right now. You'll start to notice the difference right away - for both your body and your mind.

Heart health -  Regular physical activity can lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels and can reduce the risk of illnesses such as Type II diabetes or heart disease.

Bone support - Exercise is a good way to build strong, healthy bones and can help slow the bone loss associated with getting older.

Sense of well-being - Being in good shape can give you more energy, reduce anxiety and depression, improve self-esteem, and help you better manage stress.

Social life - Staying active can be a great way to have fun, make new friends, and spend quality time with family.

Physical appearance - You look better when you're in shape. Staying active helps you tone muscles and maintain a healthy weight - and can even improve your posture.
